It’s been more than a year since the release of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card, and by now both the reference based and custom designed RTX 2080 Ti from AIB partners have already made their way to retailers. There are basically a lot of RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards available out there and a lot to choose from; I have listed here RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards from Asus, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, Zotac and including NVIDIA’s Founders Edition. Shopping for an RTX 2080 Ti can be quite confusing due to the number of options. So aside from listing the different RTX 2080 Ti offered by the manufacturers below, a number of RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards that we think are the best RTX 2080 Ti variants currently available. There is also a specs comparison list that will help you in comparing the different clock speeds, dimensions, cooler type and other information regarding the various RTX 2080 Ti in the market. I have to admit, the list is not complete as I have not included graphics cards from Galax, Gainward, Inno3D, Palit and PNY. These brands are available on certain regions only or getting one is quite difficult. Check out the list below.
UPDATE: NVIDIA’s latest GeForce RTX 30 series is out now. Check out the best GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards here.
Update 2020: Basically the same, but we noticed some price adjustments lately.
Update 2019: Added newer RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards on the list, including water-cooled RTX 2080 Ti
What Are The Best RTX 2080 Ti Available Today?
Update: I have divided the best GeForce RTX 2080 Ti into two categories. The first one is for the air-cooled RTX 2080 Ti, and the second one is for the water-cooled / AIO or hybrid RTX RTX 2080 Ti. Most of you will probably go for the air-cooled RTX 2080 Ti and this is also what I would recommend for most users. No need to worry about leaking, or pump failure and even maintenance. You just need to clean and dust it off once in a while. It’s also cheaper compared to water-cooled RTX 2080 Ti. But I will explain the benefits of water-cooled or hybrid cooled variants below.
I’ll not go into details about the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card in this article. If you want to learn more, you can check out our NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition review for more information about the new NVIDIA Turing architecture, new features, and most importantly its gaming performance. But I will give a summary and a few benchmark results to just give you an idea.
In a gist, the new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card is based on NVIDIA’s new Turing architecture. It features 4352 CUDA Cores, 544 Tensor Cores and 68 RT Cores. The Tensor cores and the RT cores are the new features responsible for the real-time ray tracing and (AI) DLSS capabilities of the graphics card. It also features 11GB of GDDR6 memory, requires at least 650W PSU and draws power from two 8-pin PCIE power connector (at least most of them). The base clock speed of an RTX 2080 Ti is 1350MHz; as usual boost clock speed varies from one model (SKU) to another, but don’t worry too much on the boost clock speed since the new RTX 20 features GPU Boost 4.0, and most of them can be overclocked to a higher clock speed (provided that the card’s cooler can keep up with the temperature).
Some GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Benchmark Results:
Below are some game benchmarks we got from NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition. All games are running at their highest or ultra graphics settings and game resolution is set to 2560×1440. As you can see from the benchmark results, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is simply on another level compared to the RTX 2080 (Super).
FAQ: What RTX 2080 Ti has the best cooler and great cooling performance?
There are several RTX 2080 Ti that has great cooling solution and performance. The beefier or thicker the heat sink on the graphics card (and the more fans) usually translate in cooler and more silent card. The 5 we picked below are some of them.
FAQ: What RTX 2080 Ti is the fastest out of the box?
Currently, the fastest RTX 2080 Ti out of the box is the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme, followed by Gigabyte’s Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme and EVGA RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming.
FAQ: What’s the cheapest RTX 2080 Ti currently available?
The RTX 2080 Ti is not a cheap graphics card at all. But if you are looking for the cheaper version, that’s definitely not the Founders Edition, unlike in the previous generation. The cheapest RTX 2080 Ti are usually the blower type or dual fan models with reference PCB. But prices aren’t looking good right now actually. EVGA has the RTX 2080 Ti Black Edition Gaming (11G-P4-2281-KR) that retails for $999.99; that’s the cheapest we have seen so far. But good luck in getting one since it has been out of stock for quite some time, even until today.
FAQ: Why buy an RTX 2080 Ti in the first place?
If you’re gaming on a 4K monitor, 1440p high refresh rate and (super) ultra-wide monitor and/or you want to take advantage of real time ray tracing and DLSS then those are some reasons why you might want to buy an RTX 2080 Ti. Based on our testing, the RTX 2080 Ti is the better solution for 4K gaming instead of the RTX 2080 and last gen’s GTX 1080 Ti. This is also a great graphics card if you have a high refresh rate monitors. The RTX 2080 Ti can really push those frames on a high refresh rate monitor. And “bragging rights” perhaps?
FAQ: What’s the best RTX 2080 Ti for my Gaming PC?
Most of these RTX 2080 Ti below will perform very similar. Some would take the lead due factory overclock settings, but not by a significant margin. Some would excel in terms of cooling performance and looks, and even quality and design of the graphics card. Below are six best GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card in the market; you can’t go wrong with any of these.
Note: The graphics cards are listed in alphabetical order.
Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti OC Edition
The Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti OC edition is currently the company’s flagship and fastest RTX 2080 Ti available. It features a boost clock speed of 1650MHz while in Gaming mode (default) and 1665MHz when in OC mode. This graphics card has a dual BIOS setup; you can flip the mini switch to make the card run cooler (Quite mode) or set it into Performance mode were the fans becomes aggressive and actively cooling the GPU. It features three axial-tech fans, RGB lighting, and occupies 2.7 PCI slots. This card also features MaxContact technology, Super Alloy Power II components and features Asus FanConnect II. This card just looks premium with its all-black design and RGB lighting highlights.
Asus ROG Strix RTX 2080 Ti OC Edition is available on Amazon.com here, Newegg.com here or Amazon UK here.
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming
EVGA presents us with a unique design and look with their RTX 20 series graphics card. It’s been a long time since graphics cards have a transparent or translucent cooler shroud. The EVGA RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming is a big graphics card with its 2.7 PCI slot design. It features a boost clock speed of 1755MHz out of the box. This is faster compared to the Asus ROG Strix, and it has a 16+3 power phase design. This card features EVGA’s iCX2 Cooling technology offering cooler and more silent operation. It’s using Hydro Dynamic Bearing VGA fans for lower noise and longer lifespan. It also features real-time wattage monitoring and that Precision X1 software is a really nice tool for configuring, overclocking and monitoring the graphics card. There’s also an optional shield and trim to customize the looks of the card, but that’s more on the aesthetics side. It also feels premium, but it is thick and you could see the large aluminum fins stack from the sides.
The EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming is available on Amazon.com here, Newegg.com here or Amazon UK here.
Note: EVGA has something for the adventurous, for those who wants an RTX 2080 Ti built for extreme overclockers. If you are looking for such graphics card, then check out the EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N Edition.
Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme
If you fancy Gigabyte’s graphics card, they have the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme; offering a boost clock speed of 1770 MHz right out of the box. I have to admit, the design and aesthetics is nothing compared to Gigabyte’s previous graphics card. This one looks great and that RGB lighting on the fans is definitely an eye candy. The Aorus RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme features a 16+3 power phase design and has a total of 7 video outputs at the back. The default is only 5, but Gigabyte decided to go crazy on the output ports and added two more HDMI ports. Another feature on this card is that the center fan rotates on the opposite direction, a.k.a “Alternate Spinning”. Gigabyte is also offering a total of 4 years warranty for this graphics card.
Check availability of the Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme on Amazon.com here, Newegg.com here or Amazon UK here.
MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio
The Gaming X Trio isn’t the best that the company has. It’s actually the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z. It’s the best that they have, with a Black / Gold aesthetics and RGB lighting on the fan. However, this card is very difficult to find and the ones listed on retail stores are insanely expensive. As an alternative and more reasonably priced, the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio is the best alternative from the company. It offers a boost clock speed of 1755MHz out of the box. This card features Torx Fan 3.0 cooling solution with a Tri-Frozr thermal design. The first fan on this graphics card is oddly small, but MSI has a reason for doing this. The graphics card is also huge and screams premium. It doesn’t feature a single color theme, but you get a two or three-tone color; black, grey and silver (back plate). There’s also RGB lighting but most are located on the center side of the graphics card. Note that this graphics card will require two 8-pin + one 6-pin PCIe power connectors. That’s a total of three power connectors.
The MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio is available on Amazon.com here, Newegg.com here or Amazon UK here.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition
This card is not the fastest out of the box, but it is clocked faster compared to a reference RTX 2080 Ti. So why is it included in the best RTX 2080 Ti list? Well, even though it’s not the fastest, I can’t deny that the RTX 2080 Ti FE looks and feels really premium. The almost all-metal shroud covering the entire PCB of the graphics card looks great. Even the NVLink connector is covered with a matching cover. There are also reports that the GPU chip built into the Founders Edition cards are binned or selected chip that are expected to be better quality compared to other RTX 2080 Ti. Also, this card only occupies two slots and it’s smaller or more compact compared to the other RTX 2080 Ti on this list.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition is available on Amazon.com here or Newegg.com here.
Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme
Last but definitely not the least among the best RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards is the Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme Edition. This graphics card, currently, is the fastest one out of the box; with its boost clock speed of 1815MHz and a memory clock speed of 14400 MHz. It features a 16+4 power phase design, the Zotac has gone crazy with its RGB lighting as well (total of 4 individual lighting zones). It has features like Active Fan control, freeze fan stop and IceStrom 2.0 (a marketing term for Zotac’s thick cooling solution). The RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme is so far the best that Zotac has to offer. There’s also a slower clocked version called the AMP Extreme Core, but basically they look similar. The only difference is the factory overclock clock settings. Unfortunately, at this time, it’s not available yet. However the RTX 2080 AMP Extreme is available instead. You’ll have to wait a little more if you want this graphics card.
There you have it; we think these are the best GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card in the market considering their set of features, design, aesthetics and performance out of the box. I might change this in the future, especially when something new and better comes out.
The Zotac GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme is available on Amazon.com here or Amazon UK here.
Best Hybrid / Water-Cooled GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Graphics Cards
This section is for the best water-cooled, AIO liquid or hybrid cooled RTX 2080 Ti in the market. Water-cooled graphics cards run cooler than air-cooled cards. As a result they potentially hit higher boost clock speed and/or could maintain a higher sustained boost clock speed. This results in a better performance than the air-cooled variants.
The downside of water-cooled graphics cards are they are usually more expensive and may require some degree of maintenance and checking. There are other cons with water cooled parts; like pump failure, clogs in the loop and leakage. Enthusiasts who are into water cooling are more or less aware of these, that’s why I don’t recommend this to newbies or users who don’t have any idea when it comes to water cooling.
Also, there are three types how these GPU are water-cooled: via a water block, an all-in-one cooler and a hybrid cooler. Graphics cards that comes with a water block only requires that you connect it to an existing water cooling system or loop. Graphics card with AIO water cooler doesn’t require an existing water cooling system, since it already comes with a pump and radiator, similar to a CPU AIO cooler. Finally, hybrid is a combination of air and AIO cooling. The GPU is attached to an AIO cooler, but some of the components are cooled by a fan.
Below are some of the best water-cooled RTX 2080 Ti in the market:
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N Edition
The EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N is the company’s top of the line RTX 2080 Ti and it is designed for overclocking enthusiasts. It features a 240mm Hybrid cooling system with 12 temperature sensors. It also has 16+3 phase VRM designed for extreme overclocking and a built-in OLED display to show real-time status of the graphics card. This is simply unlike any other RTX 2080 Ti in the market and simply the best there is.
The EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N Edition is available on Amazon.com here
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid Gaming
The K|NGP|N Edition is no cheap graphics card, it is simply designed to break world records, and many of us simply don’t need those extra features. So, the next best thing is the RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid Gaming. It has the same hybrid cooling design but instead of a 240mm radiator, this one comes with a smaller 120mm radiator. It also features the EVGA’s iCX2 Technology and Hydro Dynamic bearing fan for cooling the VRM. It features a 19 power phase design and a boost clock speed of 1755MHz. If you already have a water cooling system, and you just need a similar card with a water block, the company also has the EVGA RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hydro Copper Gaming. It’s basically the same with the Ultra Hybrid Gaming but instead of an AIO hybrid cooler, this one comes with a water block only.
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FT3 Ultra Hybrid Gaming available on Amazon.com here, Newegg.com here or Amazon UK here.
Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme WaterForce
If you want a water-cooled RTX 2080 Ti with RGB lighting, the Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme WaterForce is your best option. It features Gigabyte’s WaterForce all-in-one cooling system with 240mm radiator cooled by two 120mm RGB fans. Aside from the fans, there are RGB lighting on the front of the shroud and the logo on the backplate portion. The RGB lighting can be controlled using RGB Fusion 2.0 and can be synchronized with other compatible lighting system as well. The RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme Waterforce is also built for overclocking, with its 16+3 power phase design and a core clock speed of 1770 MHz. Although, this is not built for extreme overclocking, not like the EVGA’s K|NGP|N Edition.
Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme WaterForce available on Amazon.com here or Amazon UK here.
Again, if you want that comes with a water block only and not an AIO cooling system; Gigabyte has the AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme WaterForce WB. I’m guessing WB stands for “water block”. The graphics card itself is basically the same as the RTX 2080 Ti Xtreme WaterForce, except that this variant comes with a water block. You need to have an existing WCS and connect this graphics card in the loop.
There you have it guys! But the list of RTX 2080 Ti doesn’t end here. Below are different RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards from different AIB partners or manufacturers. I didn’t include some items on the list, like the base clock speed since most RTX 2080 Ti have a base clock speed of 1350MHz. Most of the RTX 2080 Ti also requires an 8+8 PCIe power connector. But some cards like the, EVGA K|NGP|N Edition, MSI RTX 2080 Ti Gaming (X) Trio and SEA HAWK EK X requires more power connectors. Again, there are other brands that are not included in this list. I may include them soon.

Finally, if you are planning to buy a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti today, my suggestion would be to base your decision on your preferred design or cooling solution/performance, followed by price; or price first if you are on a budget. Generally speaking, I would get an RTX 2080 Ti with a beefier heat sink and good cooling solution. You also need to consider if you chassis/case can support the size of the graphics card or not, as well as the air flow.

2080 TI HOF is the best
Sadly, they look like it was designed by 9 yr olds.

In tour ass? Is badest brand i buy in my life never again

Unfortunately, that graphics card is a rare breed
Excellent overview and great charts for reference. I’ve been in the market for one and have used this article a lot in making my purchase.

Thanks a bunch!
